We were camping at the local National Trust campsite - it was too cold to stay in the tent to cook so we headed up the road to the Wasdale Head Inn. Had a couple of great local ales and a hearty pie - was delicious and did the job but was a tad pricey (however all of the Lake District seems to be). The staff we were welcoming and happy to chat; provided walking knowledge and a pack of cards. Would return for a meal if staying in the area.
Did not stay so cannot comment on rooms or breakfast.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The world-famous Wasdale Head Inn, known as the birthplace of climbing, is dramatically surrounded by England's tallest mountains, making it the finest base for walking and climbing. The Inn is situated at the head of remote and unspoiled Wasdale, and if you are seeking the superlative this is where you will find it. England's highest mountain, the deepest lake, the smallest Church, and the original world's biggest liar can all be found in this tranquil corner of the Lake District. The Inn is managed by Georgina Wrathall on behalf of the owners, Nigel and Lesley Burton. ... more less
